The complete Scleral Buckling surgery procedure is as follows:

  • The surgeon will make an incision in the lower eyelid to gain access to the eyeball.
  • The surgeon will use a special instrument to lift the upper and lower lids, which will allow him/her to see inside the eye.
  • The surgeon will remove any excess fat or fluid from around the eyeball, and then place a bandage over the top of it.
  • The surgeon will use a laser to cut into the eyeball, creating a small hole that will allow gas and liquid to escape (the gas is called “perflourocarbons,” and the liquid is called “cryoprotectants”).

Frequently Asked Questions
